Found June 30, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Cleveland Indians have signed right-handed pitcher Boof Bonser to a minor-league deal, according to a source. The Indians later announced the move, confirming my report. Bonser has been shaky on the year going 2-6 with a 5.87 ERA and a 46/40 strikeout-to-walk ratio. If anything, Bonser provides good organizational depth in case of injury to one of the Indians other players. He won't likely be the first guy called up, but given his extensive experience in the majors and minors he'll provide Cleveland with depth. In Bonser's career, he has played for the Giants, Twins, Red Sox, Athletics, Mets and now the Indians. In his minor-league career, Bonser is 69-63 with a 3.92 ERA with a 1035/483 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The 31-year old was just recently released by the San Francisco Giants on Friday and quickly found a job with the Indians.

Each month so far has seen a different player stand out as the best player for the month with Santana excelling in April and Masterson in May and June is no different with Kipnis destroying the competition.

The Cleveland Indians open their July schedule someplace they haven't been in nearly six weeks - alone atop the AL Central. The surging Indians look to extend their winning streak to five games in Tuesday night's series opener against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

Four Myths About Why the Giants Have Stumbled in 2013

Make no mistake about it. There isn't a team in the National League West that believes the 2013 San Francisco Giants are toast. Or even partially broasted . That would include the three teams ahead of the 4th place 39-43 Giants in the NL West standings (Arizona, Colorado, and San Diego), as well as the rejuvenated and surging last place LA Dodgers. And that's a very...

Indians aim for sweep in Chicago

It's been over 18 years since the Cleveland Indians swept a four-game series from the Chicago White Sox. The Indians may have to get the best of Chris Sale on Sunday to end that drought, but that wasn't a problem in their last matchup with Chicago's ace. Since losing a season-high eight straight, the Indians (43-38) have gone in the opposite direction by winning 13 of...

Bumgarner, Posey, and Pence give Giants a much-needed win

Madison Bumgarner went seven strong innings, and Buster Posey homered (again) to give the Giants a much-needed 5-2 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Potential Indians 2013 All-Stars

It's the beginning of July and time for All-Star talk again. The Indians have been pretty good as a team this year (currently first in the AL Central) and have had stand outs among hitters, starters and relief pitchers. With the current state of voting, as usual, the Indians will not have a voted in starter in this years game (the last was Juan Gonzalez in 2001). This means their...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Chicago sweep puts Wahoos tied atop the central

I feel like every Monday morning, I open with the same theme: The Indians are streaking. I dubbed them “Team Streak” about a month ago and nothing they do is making me change that moniker any time soon. Lets review: From April 28th to to May 20th, the Tribe won 19 of 23 and played like one of the best team’s in baseball. From May 21st to June 10th, they lost 16 of 20 and couldn’t...

Reds, Giants both struggling

The San Francisco Giants' run to last year's World Series title nearly ended in the division series until they swept their road games against the Cincinnati Reds.

Guest Post: The Cakesland Windians Will Not Be Stopped
